I don’t have the words to express how wonderful I think this law firm is.  We have been working with Rajiv and his teams for the past 2 years and we will be a lifetime client!  It is a pleasure to work with people who are so lively and fun and know their stuff.  I was thinking…”how & why do you tell someone who is EXCELLENT at what they do that they are greater than even they think?” Then I thought even Superman needs to know he’s doing a great job!  Thank you for all you do for us Rajiv etal.  We are your BIGGEST FANS!!!

Rajiv and his team were very swift and helpful in answering our questions related to some of the challenges we faced on non-immigrant and immigrant petitions filed through a different attorney. Rajiv is approachable and honest on what he can and cannot do.

EB3 to EB2 porting
Comment: 
Ours is a long story. My green card was filed under EB3 India with a PD of May 2006. My husband’s green card was filed under EB3 India in 2005. When our dates became current sometime in 2007, my I-140 was already approved and his was pending. So, we decided to go ahead with my case and filed for I-485 for both of us. However, the dates then retrogressed and our lawyer informed us that my husband’s case is no longer valid since his LC expired 3 months after it was approved. We didn’t know that LC expires if not used within a specific time frame and the lawyer did not inform us either. Anyways, my husband’s GC was again filed, this time through Rajiv’s firm with proper guidance and through EB2. Rajiv also guided us to go through Consular Processing instead of I-485 since in our case, my husband could legally work using EAD via the I-485 applied through my case. In all these years, the company I work for has increased in size and wants to promote me. I consulted with Rajiv regarding this and inquired about possibility for porting from EB3 to EB2. Rajiv answered all our questions and guided us appropriately this time too. We are now waiting to hear about the Priority Dates for October 2012 bulletin and will make a decision about EB3 to EB2 porting. It feels so good to be able to talk to Rajiv regarding these questions related to immigration and his knowledge and experience in this field is very very valuable for people like us. Every time we have talked to him we have received excellent response and guidance. My husband and the company he works for had a very good experience with EB2 filing. Everything was very professional and was checked and rechecked before it was sent through. Thanks to Rajiv for all his help with our case so far!

Rajiv and his whole team were a very great support. They know their job and handeld my wife’s H1 & my H4 applications very professionally. My wife and her employer are also engaging his services for her green card. I would recommend his services to anyone who has any immigration matters to be handled.

Trying for EB-2

Job requirement says BS in engineering + 5 years of exp. No alternatives mentioned in PERM. Educational qualifications: Diploma + AMIE + M.Tech Experience: 7 Years exp. post M.tech from previous employer and 5 years from current employer. Does this can be classified under EB-2 for the above job requirement keeping AMIE degree in view? Would it be any issue during I140 regarding the education?


The AMIE is iffy. In fact I recall an AAO decision that said they will not recognize AMIE, but then a more recent decision was a bit more wishy-washy. Anyhow, I think an EB2 must be tried. The MTech will help.


Unless the context shows otherwise, all answers here were provided by Rajiv and were compiled and reported by our editorial team from comments and blog on immigration.com

Rajiv has been of incredible help to me for the last few years. I’d applied for the 485 Adjustment of Status and it looked like I’d be stuck in the queue for years before my greencard arrived. So, as I thought about my career, I decided to go back to school for a Ph.D. However, I was told by most everyone that getting an F-1 visa to go back to school would be very difficult. Rajiv gave me excellent advice to still go ahead and apply for the F-1 – I ended up getting it with no trouble whatsoever. As the years went by, I then ended up getting the greencard as well – Rajiv has been really helpful in letting me know the specific requirements (in terms of the job classifications, travel etc) related to obtaining permanent residency. I have been following his advice and I have been really pleased – he’s been absolutely accurate in all of his advice and I’m certainly counting on him in times to come as well.

EB2 Approval for Physical Therapist

We have recently received an EB2 approval for a Physical Therapist.  EB2 classification has become especially important now that EB3 category cases for severely backlogged countries are delayed so much.  The good news with PT’s is that they do not have to go through the PERM process.  But the bad news is that USCIS seems to question whether or not truly a Master’s degree or BS+5 years level job is being offered.  The I-140 approval took 1.5 months in regular processing.
